Ansoft Releases Enhanced SIMPLORER SV

December 12, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Ansoft Corp. (Pittsburgh) announced the release of SIMPLORER® SV version 6, a free downloadable version of SIMPLORER, Ansoft's mixed-domain systems design software. The tool is rapidly being adopted within the automotive, aerospace and electric-drive industries.

The new version integrates VHDL-AMS, a standard modeling language for analog mixed-signal design, within SIMPLORER's popular graphical user environment. Users can now perform simulations using VHDL-AMS alone or in combination with circuits, block diagrams, state machines and SIMPLORER's other modeling languages. Ansoft also has added dc and ac analysis capabilities to the software, making SIMPLORER an attractive alternative to SPICE simulation.
